Recently, I met with BU professor, Andrea Berlin, to talk about the Levantine Ceramics Project (LCP).
Started in 2011, the LCP is an open source, interactive website that focuses on ceramics from the Neolithic era through the Ottoman period that were produced in the Levant. It allows registered users to submit and find information about ceramic wares, specific vessels, kiln sites, and much more. Professor Berlin joked, though I think she’d be thrilled if this really happened, that she hopes one day the LCP could be like Google for pottery. The site fosters collaborative research and links scholars by being an easy way to access, share, use, and refine data.
Below you will find a series of videos all regarding the Levantine Ceramics Project. You can find all these videos in the LCP playlist on the ASOR YouTube channel, ASORtv.
